With this list of colors and their effects, you’ll be able to choose the best colored furniture to create the desired emotional effect in your bedroom.
Use the Color Wheel
The color wheel shows the way that colors interact with each other. It identifies the complementary colors, which are great for intensifying a certain emotion in a room. The color wheel also shows the temperatures of colors, with one half (the blues and violets) being the “cool” colors, and the other half (the reds and yellows) being the “warm” ones. For a bedroom, you will probably want mostly cool colors with a few warm colored accents, since cool colors promote peace and calm and warm colors are more likely to keep you up at night.
Draw It Out First
Before you purchase anything, sketch it in full color to see the entire effect. If you’re not handy with a pencil, take a photo of your current room and cut and paste furniture from catalogs to see the effect of your furniture color on the room as a whole. Seeing the full effect before you buy anything could save you time, money, and hassle!
